Have been looking at Tilal6991's source and device tree found in github in relation to the Skate's unofficial CM7 nightlies.
A couple of questions:
- Why is the kernel config not compiled in, this is suggestively implying something to hide?
- Where is the latest skate kernel source from? Is it Tom_G's github?
- That kernel is currently used in the CWM Mod which is blocking the recovery from cold boot, why is it that FTM mode is enabled by default?
This FTM mode is the block on the CWM Mod, preventing it from functioning properly from cold boot.
I have posted on another thread about this and am suspicious of the reason as to why CWM Mod is not functioning.
A quick question and experiment for you to try out:
Can you compile your CM7 CWM using CM7's code viamake clean && make recoveryimage
Now flash that freshly build recoveryimagefastboot flash recovery out/target/product/skate/recovery.img
Pull the battery and follow this:
Put the battery back in.
Power on and Vol + key - can you boot into recovery from cold boot? Yes/No? If yes, does it respond to hardware buttons? If no, you will need to pull the battery and put it back in again. Now, let the handset boot up as normal by pressing the power button.
From CM7's ROM, long press the power button to bring up a menu, select Reboot, tap on Recovery and tap Ok. can you boot into recovery from warm boot? Yes/No? If yes, does it respond to hardware buttons?
I need to double check with you and to confirm this by replying back here
Can anyone confirm if there's a /proc/config.gz in their CM7 nightly ROM that is running on their Skate?
